Biographical/Historical Note
Mr. Alfred Henry Miles (1848-1929) was an English author, composer, lecturer, editor and journalist. He was the author of well over 100 volumes and the editor of numerous story books for children. In addition, he compiled volumes of recitations. For six years, he was Guardian of the Poor and a member of the Borough Council of Lewishan from 1904-1906.

Scope and Content
The collection contains letters to Mr. Miles from artists, composers, singers, authors, journalists, publishers and politicians discussing their current works and future projects in their respective fields. Of special interest are James Ashcroft Noble's letters (53) to Mr. Miles. Mr. Noble, critic and author, describes the corrections that he is making in his articles to be included in The Poets and the Poetry of the Century, vol. VIII, 1892, edited by Mr. Miles. Two poems "Love's Irony" and "The Old Amati" by Frederic Edward Weatherly are included in the collection.

All letters are indexed in the Index to Letters and Individual Manuscripts. Where there are ten or more letters between Alfred Henry Miles and a correspondent, a single card has been made for the public manuscript card catalogue, and a typed list of the individual letters has been inserted in the register.
